About this Research Topic
Significant advances have also been made with regards to better understanding the vestibular system. With new technological advances, we can now examine the vestibular end-organs with greater detail. Because the vestibular system participates in balance and spatial orientation, dizziness can limit children’s ability to participate in different types of activities and affect their quality of life. Also, dizziness in general can be an alarming symptom for parents.
The goal of this Research Topic is to provide a platform for research regarding audiovestibular disorders in pediatrics and present recent advances in audiovestibular testing, hearing amplification, vestibular rehabilitation, and genetics regarding hearing loss and /or dizziness in children.
In this Research Topic we welcome articles (original research article, brief research report, review, mini-review, systematic review) on the following themes, but not limited to, those listed below:
Pathophysiology of hearing loss and/or vestibular dysfunction in pediatrics
Genetic hearing loss in pediatrics
Inner ear disorders in pediatrics
Ototoxicity in pediatrics
Noise-induced hearing loss in pediatrics
Post-concussion syndrome in pediatrics
Hearing amplification: hearing aids and cochlear implants in pediatrics
Congenital hearing loss
Newborn hearing screening
Hearing loss and/or vertigo in syndromic and non-syndromic children
Hearing loss and/or vertigo in rare pediatric diseases
Vestibular testing in children
